The BlackBerry Q5 is cheaper than the Q10, but are the savings worth it?

The BlackBerry Q5 is the poor man’s version of the BlackBerry Q10. First launched in developing markets, the Q5 is now available in Canada for the budget conscious.

In this video review,’s Brian Jackson asks if the extra cash in your pocket worth the performance hit, as he puts the Q5 through its paces.

His conclusion? Consider the Q5 if you really want a BlackBerry and are going to buy it off contract. It retails for about $400 compared to about $650 for the Q10. But if you’re getting a subsidized device anyway, shell out the extra dough for a better device.
